  12. Dear All who are facing issues in Windows 10 and GST Offline Tool (White Screen). I have after a lot of research found the culprit and the rectification. The culprit is the old NSSM bundled with the package (2014). Remedy is Go to Services and stop GSTOFFLINE64 service. Then visit and download 2017 version and replace this file in the GST Offline directory. Go to services again and start the GSTOFFLINE64 service.. It will work.
